These Drip Birthday Cakes are colorful, whimsical and oh so sweet!
This year I’ve made a few Drip Birthday Cakes for people I love and I thought I’d share them here all together.
I’ve admired this fun, drippy, candy-explosion style cake for a while and was excited to play with some ideas!
Of course, when you top a cake with another layer of color, then candy, cookies, sprinkles and more… how could you go wrong? =)
PIN IT NOW to save for later!
I believe Katherine Sabbath is likely the artist who primarily started the current trend of crazy-fun-drippy-candy-explosion style cakes.
Here are some of her earlier cakes –> Katherine Sabbath Cakes 2014
And here’s a fun mini video that shows her process –> Katherine Sabbath Ice Cream Drip Cake
Then, Jenny Cookies Bake Shop adds a whole other dimension to the drip style cakes by adding decorated cookies (now you’re speaking my language), crispy treats, and all kinds of other adorable goodies!
I could (and do) spend lots of time drooling over these beauties –> Jenny Cookies Bake Shop Cakes
I created the three cakes pictured in this post using a bit of a mash-up of these ladies ideas, combined with my own style and color choices.
How to make a Drip Cake…
Bake, cool, layer, crumb coat, frost, then chill your cake.
Once you have a fully assembled and frosted cake, put the cake in the freezer while you prepare your chocolate drizzle for the “drip”.
